With players deep, almost superstitious connection to their jersey numbers, one of the questions many asked when DeSean Jackson signed with the Redskins was if he or RGIII would wear #10.
Jackson said that even though it’s been less that 24 hours since the deal was inked, the two have already discussed options regarding the desired number.
“I definitely am familiar on the No. 10 [worn by] Robert Griffin. We’ve talked about it a little bit. But that isn’t a decision that’s been made yet so far. […] Maybe RG3 will wear No. 3 and I’ll try to get in [No.] 10. We’ll see how it goes, though. You never know.”
I always assumed that since RGIII was there first and is the face of the franchise there would be no question he would retain #10…but I guess I was wrong. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
